, april 16th. we'll get the latest on conflicting reports about additional unexploded bombs as the fbi takes the lead in this investigation. and the stories of survival and heroism from the scene. how runners, spectators and first responders protected the wounded and vulnerable. speculation is mounting whether the blasts were domestic or internationally orchestrated terror. let's recap the latest for you. three people are dead, including an 8-year-old boy. his family members are reportedly seriously wounded, as well. that number could go up with nearly 130 people injured. two explosive devices were detonated less than 15 seconds apart at the finish line of the race. here's the iconic video, shot around 2:50 p.m., well after the top tier of runners had finished. there you see the blast. giant plumes of gray smoke in the air. they could be seen across the charles river. and of course, people went scrambling from the grandstands. >> large plumes of dust and smoke, glass. everybody was going crazy. at first it sounded like a canon blast. >> it was loud. >> i knew immediately, it was a bomb
condition. >> ron allen at mass general. thanks for that. >>> the fbi is now in charge of the investigation. and one white house official calls the act an act of terrorism. police say they have no suspects. but law enforcement officials have expressed interest in a man seen leaving the area in dark clothing. and there's word of a federal search warrant being executed in a boston suburb. chris jansing join us live with the latest on the case. >> good morning. the fbi says they're leading a joint federal task force on terrorism. however, they caution that this is a criminal investigation that could turn into a terror investigation. it involves federal, state and local police. and obviously, the question is, who might have done this? and why? they're careful to say there are no suspects. you talk about the warrant that was served in suburban boston. things were taken out of the apartment. but no arrests, no suspects, according to police. the ongoing question about exactly what happened, there is intensive investigation going on right now. everything from the criminal investigation to the foren
place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. >> well, there's still so much we don't know. who did this? no one knows. why? was it an act of domestic terrorism or foreign? was this the work of an individual or a group of people? despite the stepped up police presence at the site, despite the advanced frenzices used by the investigators, despite all the cell phones we're using, all those videos out there, there's no guarantee who is responsible for this will be discovered any time soon. it took nearly two years, let's remember, for the fbi to locate and arrest the unabomber, two decades, rather. the unabbomber. let's begin this hour with former cia counterterrorism director, larry johnson. your thoughts about this kind of challenge and the working relationships among the various agencies, federal and state. >> one of the biggest issues usually in all of these events has been the interaction between federal law enforcement and local law enforcement. in the 1993 world trade center bombing because
. >> here's what we know about the investigation now being headed by the fbi. investigators say the attack consisted of just two bombs. nbc news has learned there were no other unexplode devices. at least five suspicious packages were destroyed and dozens had to be checked. in terms of suspects, right now there is no one in custody. however, police did interview a saudi man that was hospitalized with burns. they also searched his home in the boston suburb of revere and were seen removing items in bag. two men were being searched for. at this point it is not clear if the attack ornl natuiginated ov or domestically and there's been no credible claims of responsibility. today law enforcement sealed off the site of the explosions, an area stretching a mile long and about three blocks wide. streets are closed and the copley subway station is shut down. nobody is allowed into the area while the crime scene is active. >> that area is not going to be accessible for normal traffic. there are people in hotels, people who live there who have to work out how they get to and from where they need to be.
. >> this was a heinous and cowardly act. and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. it will take time to follow every lead and determine what happened. but we will find out. we will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice. >> today we also are getting new video of the actual explosions. including the only tape we've seen taken by a woman actually running in the race. [ explosion ] . >> and new radio calls from first responders reveal the chaotic moments just after the explosions. >> we have reports of two explosions here. we have at least a dozen people with serious injuries. >> at least two explosions. a dozen serious injuries, a multiple injury incident. >> authorities are now asking anyone with potential photo or video evidence to come forward and help the investigation. joining me now live from boston is mikeal isikoff, national investigative correspondent for nbc news. with me here in the studio is nbc news terrorism expert michael

. >> the immediate area where the blast happened is closed. the fbi now leading a sweeping investigation and asking the public to please send in their photos, their videos and they're vowing to scour every frame, every piece of video for answers. boston's leaders this morning asking for vigilance and promising the city will bounce back. >> everyone should expect continued heightened police presence and everyone should continue personally to be vigilant. >> bad day for boston but i think if we pull together we'll get through it. we're a strong city. people willing to work together to make it a better place for all of our people. >> we want to thank those from around the country and world whose prayers and thoughts and offers of help have poured in. we're deeply grateful as mayor says, boston will survive. >> at the white house, the american flag is at half staff. the president getting regular briefings this morning about the ongoing response and the investigation. this morning, he signed a proclamation in honor of the victims and yesterday at dinner time he promised a relentless search for answers.
bomb exploded at 2:50 eastern time yesterday afternoon. the fbi said it will go to the ends of the earth to find those responsible. the fbi is also asking for more pictures and even more video from the scene itself. in the last couple of hours, the president updated the nation on the investigation. >> we continue to mobilize and deploy all appropriate law enforcement resources to protect our citizens and investigate and to respond to this attack. obviously, our first thoughts this morning are with the victims, their families, and the city of boston. we know that two explosions gravely wounded dozens of americans and took the lives of others including, an 8-year-old boy. this was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. what we don't yet know, however, is who carried out this attack or why. whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individ

on "andrea mitchell reports" -- terror in boston. this hour, the latest on the investigation. >> the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any times bombs are used to target innocent civilian, it's an act of terror. >> we stress that any information you may have, any videos or photographs not just at that scene, but anywhere in the immediate vicinity could be helpful to this investigation. >> everyone should expect continued heightened police presence and everyone should continue personally to be vigilant. >> the victims, including 8-year-old martin richard. >>> and the dozens of people undergoing repeated surgeries today. >> i think the most important thing to consider right now is that all the patients are first alive. and second, are in rather stable condition. they're quite sick, some of them. and admitted to the intensive care unit. but overall we're very pleased with the results. >> as flags at the white house are lowered to half-staff, president obama praises those who rush to aid the injured. >> you want to know who we are? what america is? we respond to evil. that's it
in boston. we've got some of the best to begin, people from the fbi, new york, other areas that are specially trained on that. this is an amazing country, and as much as we feel that we're pulled apart tonight, i just think of all those people running shoulder and shoulder. and this city is lifeless tonight. >> yeah. >> but there will be tomorrow, and we're going to be pulling together as a country. and this is a very resilient city as well and we will pull together and help as much as we can the victims, and we're going to make sure that the people who did this are brought to justice. >> congressman, thank you for being with us. appreciate your time. thanks for being with us on msnbc. we are able to confirm three dead and more than 110 people injured. the injury numbers at this point, we've heard 113, 120, we are getting continued updates from the hospitals, from the many hospitals close to where i am, mass general, in terms of those treated. as we get more details, this does seem to have mostly hit people who had been gathered on the sidelines, not just passers by, and no
're going to get into casualties in a minute, but what's happening with the fbi investigation? >> well, we'll start with an update this morning. the fbi is taking the lead backed by officials from the atf and the massachusetts state police. so far, no one is in custody. but authorities are confirming the search of an apartment last night in neighboring revere. it's still unclear if it's part of the investigation into the bombings. investigators are also speaking to a saudi citizen who was injured in the explosion. he's apparently in the united states on a student visa, but again, no arrests. it's also unclear how many bombs were planted at the scene according to the "new york times." two other devices in addition to the bombs that went off were found and disabled by police before they were detonated. how frightening. mike talked about the tradition of this event and how many bost i bostonians and americans it brings together. also about 100 countries from around the world which will lead to a debate about where this came from until they figure it out. >> what? >> you don't know if it's dom
plays a factor in just about every terrorism case the fbi sees nowadays. >> what do you think about the initial reports we were hearing about certain suspicious packages or potentially other devices that were found? and now today that's all been walked back? should we be more suspicious anding aiand asking more questions about what has been found on the scene potentially? because this could have been a lot worse if there were more explosive device found. >> well, and any major crime scene like this, there's going to be a lot of information. people are scrambling to get their hands on the facts as soon as possible. and i think maybe it was just some semantics. as i understand it, there were a number of render safe procedures done an suspicious packages, and maybe the terminology "suspicious package" was used or not used instead of device, or they should have been, you know, flip-flopped. >> the investigators will be looking in casualty-producing areas. this wouldn't be things that were dropped because of the mayhem created because of the explosions. they would be specifically looking
details. >> the fbi is taking the lead in this invest sgags. it's criminal that is a potential terrorist investigation. comfortable racing weather for the runners ready to compete for personal glory or just the honor of it all. it's usually a joyous day off. today someone stole all of that killing and maiming innocence who can never forget the day they ran when the finish line was strong with crime scene tape. >> mat has made his way up to boston. good evening. >> reporter: those patients are in extremely good hands. this is a well regarded hospital. it's the oldest one level one trauma. i'm joined by three eyewitnesss to this tragedy. i'm happy to say they were not among the injured. thank you for joining us. i know you were making your way around the finish line. how close did you get before the bombs went off. i was about 20 yards away. there was a lot of traffic on the walk right near the finish line. it really slowed me up. we saw the smoke. we saw people bleeding. it was unlike anything i had ever seen before. >> how quick was the response? how quickly were those people cared for?
organizations, including the fbi and the boston poce department gave the latest on their investigations. >> our mission is clear, to bring to justice those responsible for the marathon bombing. the american public wants answers, the citizens of the city of boston and the commonwealth of massachusetts want and deserve answers. this remains a very active investigation, our ongoing investigation in various locations throughout the area goes on. however, there are no known additional threats. i'm not going to say who is, who it might or might not be in custody right now. >> we are in the process of securing and processing the most complex crime scene that we've dealt with in the history of our department. >> here is what we know at this hour there were two confirmed explosive devices containing ball bearings, contrary to earlier reports, there were no other unexploded devices at the scene. nbc news is also reporting that officials are studying surveillance video and have focused on one piece of tape showing an unidentified person carrying two back pacs. too early to
speaking for the second time in two days, clarifying this time that the white house and the fbi is treating this as an act of terror and as if for an emphasis, we heard now within the last hour or so from janet napolitano and eric holder, the attorney general, both saying this is being treated as an act of terror. the white house wants to make it clear how seriously they take this. >> peter alexander, thanks so much. >> i want to bring in tom busey, president of usa sports media group. he ran the marathon and crossed the finish line moments before the first explosion. if you would, take us back to that scene. you've just finished. you're in this sort of post marathon haze and then what? >> sure. it was the best and the worst, right? an absolutely beautiful day gone tragic. crossing the finish line a couple minutes before the explosion was euphoric, followed by they are or four minutes later, the first of two bombs going off. we were walking around. those who just finished in a days. after 26.5 miles, you're kind of out of it. you're empty. the first bomb took us all a bit by surprise and i
. he's been briefed throughout the day by robert muller, the director of the fbi as well as dhs secretary, janet napolitano. he will continue to get updates throughout the evening. there's not a lot of information on who carried out the attacks this evening. they don't know if it was carried out by someone here on u.s. soil or someone abroad. so, that is really the key question they are looking into. again, president obama is looking to monitor this situation into the evening. lawrence? >> thank you. joining me now with the latest on that investigation, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. >> lawrence, good evening. investigators know this attack involved two bombs. what they don't know is whether there were other explosives involved. at least five other packages found on the street were deemed to be suspicious and destroyed by boston police and bomb squad techs. there were many packages to check. people dropped what they were carrying and ran away. we have heard conflicting accounts about whether there were unexploded bombs. some say two other packages were found that
